Is douhua / doufuhua 豆腐花 / tofu fa / tofu pudding served & sold in the outer boroughs ?
I know they sell them at Fong Inn Too & Kong Kee in Manhattan, has anyone come across this dessert in the outer boroughs ?
I believe I've seen it sold at one of the stalls on 8th Ave in the 50s in Brooklyn. But I don't think they're present all the time.
The fresh Dofu Fa at what used to be called Gum Fung was excellent, topped with a great sweet, thin syrup. I have had it at the new Jade Asian about six months ago when I was last there and it was also excellent, but the syrup wasn't as good. It may just have been a bad day or it was too watered down. They come around during dim sum with a special cart with a huge tub of the fresh, hot, ethereally light Dofu Fa; ladle it out for you, then squirt the syrup on top. It's one of my all time favorite deserts of any cuisine.

Also, packaged 豆花 can be found in a Asian supermarkets. Of course, quality is not the same as the freshly-made product, but there is a significantly wider variety of flavors
